    Eight is Too Late!

    Please remember that school begins promptly at 7:55 a.m. everyday!  Your child must be AT their classroom door when the bell rings.  Otherwise, they will be marked tardy.  Excessive tardiness will result in a referral to our school Social Worker in order to provide assistance to you in getting your child to school on time.  A warning bell will also ring at 7:45 to tell students to head to their classrooms.  We have supervision on campus at 7:35 a.m. everyday, so please come early!
